True or False7.Typical first-aid for chemicals splashed in the eyes includes _____________________________________.8.You will only know the health hazards and PPE requirements if you ____________________________.9.A ______________________________ can be used to protect against breathing hazardous vapors or gases.10.If you see a chemical spill, you should clean it immediately. True or False

  • Quiz Answers1.Material safety data sheets must be provided by the manufacturer.2.False. MSDSs must always be accessible to the employees.3.These are all symptoms of acute effects, or short-term exposure.4.The primary routes chemicals enter the body are skin and eye contact, inhalation, and swallowing.5.False. Many household chemicals are more hazardous than chemicals found at work.

  • Quiz Answers (cont.)6.False. The red diamond indicates flammability hazards, not health hazards.7.Flushing the eyes for 15 minutes is the typical first aid for chemicals splashed in the eyes.8.You must read the labels and MSDSs to learn how to protect yourself from the hazards of a chemical.9.Respirators protect against breathing hazardous vapors and gases.10.False. Only attempt to clean a chemical spill if youve been properly trained.

    I. Speakers Notes:The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to have a written Hazard Communication Plan. The plan demonstrates the employers commitment to helping employees work safely with the chemicals that are used in the workplace.Todays class will discuss the chemicals in the workplace, how to determine chemical hazards, and how to protect yourself from those hazards.I. Background for the Trainer:Have the employees give examples of chemicals that they use at work and at home.Ask the class if a chemical has ever caused them to feel sick (hangovers from too much alcohol dont count).Have they ever burned their skin or eyes with a chemical?

    II. Speakers Notes:These are all examples of why we are conducting this class. We want you to be able to work safely with hazardous chemicals at work and at home. As long as you understand the hazards and know how to protect yourself from those hazards, working with chemicals can be done safely.I.Speakers Notes:The goal of this training session is to make sure you have a complete understanding of:Right to KnowPPE, first aid, spills and leaksLabels and MSDSsAt the end of this session, well take a short quiz to test your understanding.

    I. Speakers Notes:OSHA has created the Hazard Communication Standard to help ensure your safety when working with chemicals.The Hazard Communication Standard requires employee training to include:A discussion of the operations at your company that use hazardous chemicalsHow to detect the presence or release of a hazardous chemicalA discussion of the physical and health hazards of chemicalsHow employees can protect themselves from the hazardous chemicalsThis training module will cover the basics of all the required topics. Feel free to ask questions during the presentation if anything is unclear or needs further explanation.I. Speakers Notes:Chemical Manufacturers must:Determine physical and health hazards of each product they makeLabel all containersMake and provide material safety data sheets (MSDS)Employers must have and make the following available to employees:A written hazard communication programA list of the hazardous chemicals that the company usesMaterial safety data sheetsTraining that teaches employees:About the Hazard Communication StandardAbout chemicals that are used in the workplaceTo recognize, understand, and use labels and MSDSsTo use safe proceduresI. Speakers Notes:As with any program, the Hazard Communication Standard will not be effective without the participation of all employees.You should know where MSDSs are located and how to find the MSDS for a specific chemical. You should also know how to pull out important information such as the health hazards, symptoms of exposure, and how to protect against those hazards (i.e., using PPE).Once you know what PPE to wear when using the chemical, you must follow the instructions and warnings on the MSDS or label. This means no shortcuts. Wear the required PPE.

    I. Speakers Notes:Most people understand and recognize physical hazards and know how to protect themselves against them (e.g , no smoking near the propane tank). However, few people recognize and understand chemical hazards and, therefore, do not know how to protect themselves. Sometimes the effects of a hazardous chemical are not felt immediately; therefore, appropriate precautions are not taken.Physical hazards include: fires or explosions, sudden release of pressure, or reactivity (e.g., when a chemical can burn, explode, or release gases after contact with water, air, or other chemicals). Have employees give examples (from both work and home) of each of the categories listed under physical hazards.Flammable: Acetone, propane, gasoline, paintsExplosive: Compressed gas cylinders, aerosol cansReactive: Mixture of bleach and ammoniaHealth hazards include: illnesses or other health problems that could develop as a result of overexposure to a chemical. Short-term effects include headache, dizziness, skin irritation. Long-term effects may be liver or lung damage or even cancer. Have employees give examples (from both work and home) of each of the categories listed under health hazards.Corrosive: Nitric acid, many strong household cleanersToxics: Pesticides, benzene in gasoline, many solvents, leadI. Speakers Notes:Skin and eye contact: Irritation (e.g., itchiness, blisters) caused by solvents, degreasers, soaps; burns caused by corrosives; internal reactions (e.g., toxins) caused by hydrocarbon solvents; and aller
